Native New Yorker and trumpeter Mike Lewis pays tribute to the late great jazz singer, Al Jarreau.

Al Jarreau was an American singer and musician. He received a total of seven GRAMMY® Awards and was nominated for over a dozen more. Jarreau is perhaps best known for his 1981 album "Breakin' Away." He released his critically acclaimed debut album "We Got By" in 1975 which catapulted him to international fame and won an Echo Award (the German equivalent of the GRAMMYS® in the United States). A second Echo Award would follow with the release of his second album, "Glow." In 1978, he won his first GRAMMY® Award for Best Jazz Vocal Performance for his album, "Look To The Rainbow."

Mike Love    (0 Votes)
Revolutionary music may seem hard to come by in these days and times. Long gone is the era of artists like Bob Marley, The Clash, Stevie Wonder and Patti Smith getting airplay and bringing their messages to the masses. But that doesn’t mean that the revolution isn’t still brewing in the hearts and minds of many people around the globe.

Meet Mike Love. One of reggae music’s rising stars. Born and raised in Oahu, Hawaii to a musical family that spans generations, Mike Love brings a multitude of influences to the table, all tied together by the common goal of making the world a better place. Through the grassroots method of releasing his albums independently, on his own Love Not War Records label, and performing 250 plus shows a year, Love has built an ever growing following for his unique and inspiring music. He has toured with many artists in the circles of conscious, roots music, including Trevor Hall, Xavier Rudd, Nahko and many more. Over the past few years he performed to enthusiastic audiences at the California Roots Festival, Wakarusa, Wanderlust and the Montreal Jazz Fest, just to name a few. He has also enjoyed great success and exposure through the web on outlets like YouTube, with one of his videos just recently hitting 9 million views!

His songs take you on a journey, one of healing and inspiration. One designed to help you on your path to knowledge, wisdom and understanding. He laments the ills of the world but also discusses solutions and ideas to change them. These are songs with messages designed to affect change in a time when it is so desperately necessary.

Pianist Josh Kaye returns to Blue Note with a special concert tribute to Stevie Wonder.

Josh moved to Hawaii in 2008 after being part of the San Francisco jazz scene for twelve years. His 2004 debut recording entitled “The Joshua Kaye Quartet - Live!” included sidemen from the Cal Tjader band and was described as “kinetic Latin swing.” Since moving to Hawaii, he has been recording and performing locally with his trio as well as his R&B/jazz group Adagio. In 2015, Josh released a CD of his own original music performed on solo piano called “Introspection”. Currently, Josh is finishing an album of jazz standards that bring together many of Honolulu’s finest musicians as well as including notable mainland players such as New York trumpet player Eddie Henderson.

If DNA conjures up visions of sterile science labs for you, then MānoaDNA is about to change your world. Weaving a patchwork of styles and genres into one solid sound, this multi-generational group quickly became a fixture in the music scene. They have taken the science out of DNA and replaced it with harmonies that will touch your soul.
“DNA” stands for Dad, Nick and Alx- and yes, it is all in the genes. For 11 years, MānoaDNA has been captivating audiences across the country and the Pacific. This talented family band brings 3-part harmony, upbeat sounds, and infectious enthusiasm to every stage.
Separately they are good, together they are great.
“Dad” (Lloyd), a professional musician for over 35 years, quickly recognized the potential for perfect harmony when he saw that his sons had inherited his passion for music. He encouraged and coached them as they strived to take their sound to the next level. Lloyd often draws from personal history and friendships as he showcases the musical talents of MānoaDNA.
After graduating from the college, where he was a soloist with the University Singers, Nick returned home and joined forces with younger brother Alx. Their idea, to form a band of brothers and entertain friends and family at casual gatherings and parties, quickly began to gather steam. Their dad added a third dimension and they realized they had a sound worth perusing.
Alx, meanwhile, with one year of college on the mainland under his belt, had returned home determined to pursue his music in Hawai’i. His innate abilities and perseverance have been the catalyst to propel MānoaDNA. Armed with original compositions and a vision, he took destiny by the reigns. Alx currently lives in LA where he is learning from some of the world’s best performers and songwriters.

Danny Kaleikini, a staple in Hawaiian music and the “Ambassador of Aloha,” has been entertaining audiences from around the world for over 50 years and is most commonly known for his long-standing residency at the Kahala Hilton, a stint that ran for 30 years. He was the opening act for Paul Anka at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas and has performed alongside Dolly Parton, Sammy Davis Jr., Don Ho, Hilo Hattie, and Jimmy Borges.
Nicholas, a classically trained musician and producer at Lana Lane Studios, played clarinet in his early years that developed into a lifelong love of the saxophone and piano. He is the Director of the POW! WOW! School of Music, a free two-week-long music intensive program for local youth. Nicholas also performs with internationally acclaimed emcee and activist Shing02 and recently finished touring China, Japan, New York City, Boston, Los Angeles, and Seattle.
In 2015, the duo released their first album together entitled Aloooha. The album was nominated for EP of the Year at the 2016 Nā Hōkū Hanohano Awards. The duo released their second album, entitled Mahaaalo, December of 2016, marking the first time that Danny and Nicholas will be releasing original music.
When asked about collaborating with his grandson, Danny stated, “Aloha kekahi i kekahi, love one another. Aloha ke akua, God is love. To work with my grandson, and to share with him what I know, and to learn from him from what he knows, is a special bond. To come together as one ‘ohana, the end result is simply, aloha.”
The duo produced and arranged the EP alongside Lindley P. Cannon to create a modern take on the old sounds of Hawai‘i Nei. The jazz and blues-influenced recordings showcase Danny’s legendary vocals backed by the saxophone, piano, acoustic guitar, upright bass, and steel guitar. Other musicians featured on the EP includes Alika Lyman, Jeff Au Hoy, Wil Tafolo, Dae Han, and Lanihuli Lee.

AWB are widely regarded as one of the best soul and funk bands in the history of music. Though best known for their timeless instrumental mega-hit 'Pick Up the Pieces' the band's strength actually lay in their consistently accomplished song-writing, stretching across several gold selling albums and multi- grammy nominations for the legendary Atlantic Records. Somewhat incongruously, given their Scottish roots, the six piece took the influences of their R&B; heroes - people like Marvin Gaye, James Brown, Donny Hathaway and others - and developed their own 'authentic' sound which was eagerly adopted by black audiences in the US and elsewhere. While a good number of cuts - 'Cut The Cake' and 'Let's Go Round Again'- became hit singles, many other album tracks, like 'Schoolboy Crush' and 'Stop The Rain' became much sampled grooves. Many more tunes, such as 'Cloudy', and 'A Love Of Your Own'- amongst many others- stand alongside some of the finest soul 'album tracks' ever recorded.
The current line-up of the band - this time with noted US recruits augmenting founder members Alan Gorrie and Onnie McIntyre - continue to record and tour around the world to ongoing critical and audience acclaim.

All this and more is perfectly illustrated in the band's latest release, "AWB R&B", a live CD recorded in Austin,Texas in September of 2015.

In the 1970s, Robert Cazimero was instrumental in the resurgence of Hawaiian music and culture. That resurgence began a career that almost thirty years later is stronger than ever. Musician, composer, kumu hula...his work in all of these areas is well-known throughout the world. For Robert's Blue Note Hawaii shows, he switches things up and performs a variety of jazz standards as well as traditional Hawaiian favorites.
His incomparable elegant voice is distinctive, whether he performs solo on piano or with his brother, Roland, as The Brothers Cazimero. Recording has played an important part of Robert's career, and he has collectively (as The Brothers Cazimero) and individually released over 30 albums over the past three decades. The success of these recording projects can easily be measured by the fact that they all remain on the market. Fans of Robert and The Brothers Cazimero boast of a complete collection of CDs and tapes.
The many talents of Robert Cazimero have established him as a benchmark in Hawaiian music and culture.
